Best Local TV Anchor (2007)

José Griñan

Houston has been happily waking up with José Griñan for over a decade now. Part of the FOX 26 Morning News since its inception, José Griñan is on-air every morning from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. and then again for the FOX 26 News at Noon. Unlike his "wring the emotion out of every story" counterparts, Griñan is evenhanded and objective, remaining professional even when reporting the most wrenching of stories. It's that calm that viewers have come to trust. The Cuban-American Griñan began his career as a serviceman making documentaries for the Army. From there he went on to work in New York, Miami and L.A. before coming to Houston. While a FOX 26 news anchor, Griñan has covered major events of all types, including floods, hurricanes and the Branch Davidian siege in Waco, where he was one of the first reporters on the scene. Griñan regularly hosts the community affairs program The Black Voice and occasionally sits in as host for Hola Houston.
